We have booked our holidays in Cornwall, England in July. I don't know if that has anything to do with the fact that a few of my pieces recently seems to have a seaside feel. I just have had this longing for sea life themed objects in my jewelry lately. I bought a wonderful Mr Fish from Barbara Bechtel of Floridity for instance. I thought he would sit on my chest and guard me on days when I feel a bit fragile. I have not put him into work yet though.
Here's a bracelet I made. It has a green resin shell made by HumbleBeads. She didn't make many of that kind, and I am so glad I got my hands on one (about 2-3 years ago), and that it finally has found a place alongside another silvery shell charm and some pretty briolettes, drops and beads. All strung on memory wire with shell shaped pearly glass beads in between.
There isn't actually anything seaside motif in this necklace. But the color scheme and those absolutely gorgeous large rustic pearls makes me feel it is anyway. I had ordered 6 of them from a bead shop in the UK, and when they arrived I just went directly and ordered all the ones they still had left in the shop at the time. 17 more arrived the other day :-) . I love them!
And finally here's one for getting in the mood for seaside life, with the Queen:
All my best,
